With a limitless global vision, a new local fashion label is changing the game for haute menswear
Sharply dressed men are carving up the streets and pavements everywhere around the globe, but as any man worth his weight in cashmere can attest, when seeking out impeccable, European influenced menswear on our fair shores, the options have been very limited until now. Thankfully, a new bespoke label in the form of E. von Dadelszen is set to change everything we know about luxury fashion available in New Zealand.
Cementing the brand’s arrival is its newly minted boutique, located on the first floor of a historic building in Auckland’s Britomart. Those seeking access to the E. von Dadelszen boutique via the discreet Galway Street door are rewarded upon arrival with the visually arresting beauty of the highly curated space designed by Nat Cheshire. Harbouring a lifelong passion for composing and wearing expertly tailored menswear, founder and creative director Edward von Dadelszen’s wealth of knowledge includes a seven-year tenure as Creative Director at one of New Zealand’s premier menswear labels. His ambition now? To bring a new level of luxurious fashion construction and artistry typically found in Paris, London, and New York, to our shores.
Covering all aspects of menswear, the E. von Dadelszen boutique displays shirts, tailoring, knitwear, leather jackets, shoes and weekend wardrobe essentials — each piece a testament to fine craftsmanship. The art of ‘Su Misura’ — the Italian phrase referencing the height of personalisation — is evident in much of the collection, offering absolute customisation where available. Appointment-only sessions with Dadelszen ensure that the level of detail starts from the outset; your car will be conveniently valet parked on arrival, followed by a steaming hot espresso or a glass of chilled Perrier Jouët while you relax into the moment. With unparalleled access to some of the world’s finest fabrics and craftsmen — the softest deerskin from Pennsylvania, the most sumptuous of leather from Paris, or the most impeccably crafted Italian footwear — his label showcases a collection comprised of highly crafted pieces on par with those from the likes of Tom Ford, Hermès, Saint Laurent, and Givenchy.
Poised for local as well as international success, Dadelszen is a fearless industry pioneer who embodies everything his label represents. Never not perfectly dressed, his objective is to create exquisite clothing for those who hold the same disposition. It’s safe to say there’s a new kid in town, and he looks very sharp indeed.
